Maternity helpline

The maternity triage is a 24/7 service which assesses women above 18 weeks of pregnancy by either providing telephone information or face to face assessment. If you think you are in labour or have any concerns about you or your baby, then please call our maternity helpline on 0208 934 2802. If you are less than 18 weeks and have any concerns, please contact your GP. In an emergency, visit your local Emergency Department.

Please remember to bring your hand-held records with you if you are advised to attend the hospital, so that we can assess how your pregnancy has been progressing.

If you are attending with an urgent concern, we aim to see you for an initial triage appointment within 15 minutes to carry out a brief assessment. After this, depending on the urgency of your situation, you may be asked to wait in the waiting room for ongoing care. We prioritise our patients based on their level of clinical need, not their order of arrival. This may mean that patients who arrive after you may be seen before you. We appreciate your patience and understanding – this helps us to provide safe and effective care.
